Yuma, AZ photog saves a boy from drowning

I came across this STORY TODAY and was heartened to see how this photographer reacted. I know that a lot of photographers in his position probably wouldn't have gotten involved because supposedly we, as observers, aren't supposed to get involved. I've never truly agreed with that and feel that if an opportunity to help someone should arise before me that I would react in a similar HUMAN way. That is my hope. What really makes this special, from a photographers standpoint, is that after helping this kid and getting him medical aid, he also made a great picture that ran with the story of the event.

For an even better telling of the story read his BLOG ENTRY about the event.
